We had a wine tasting at our club a while ago, of wines that are made or associated with club members. My buddy the ex-police chief comes from a wine making family, so I got him to donate a case, but neither he nor I drink, so someone else had to pour it.

I thought I would finally reply to this thread.

Question:
What is the difference between a bassoon and a flute?

Answer:
You can hit a baseball much farther with a bassoon.

That must be A.S. Bach, the brother of P.D.Q.

The thought makes me shriver in fear.

That's what you call really taking a "dive!"



There was a pianist named Dougherty
who played on a piano-forte.
He played on and on,
made the audience yawn,
and died when he was about forty.

There once was a pianist named Damon
wrote a limerick he thought was a great one.
But his friends and associates
thought it quite atrocious,
so they bade him go back to his playin'.

There once was a pirate named Ford
who chopped up a piano with his sword.
But the kindling he sought
would better have been bought,
for he found all he got was a chord.

A tutor who tooted a flute,
tried to teach two tooters to toot.
Said the two to the tutor,
"Is it harder to toot, or
to tutor two tutors to toot?"

A man who had played the bassoon
was heard whistling a hillbilly tune.
And although it's not fair
He was moved from first chair,
and forbidden to play Claire de Lune.

An upright bass player named Hippen Said, "Frankly, for long-distance shippin',
I'd prefer a French horn:
It's more easily borne,
And it's nice to put crackers and dip in."

There was a musician named Schickele
Who could blow Finicula-Finiculi
On a tube of toothpaste,
Which was not in good taste,
Though rather amazing technically.

A guitarist named Pat Donohue
Said, "Guitar is ideal, in my view.
I find it attracts
more girls than a sax,
And the neighbors are fond of it, too."

There was a young man of Nevada
Who played tunes on a jug or a pot, a
Musician whose repertoir
Went from Sgt. Pepper t' Our
Gang to the Moonlight Sonata.

There was an old crooner named Geoff
Who gradually became deaf
Til he couldn't distinguish
Italian from English
Or the treble from the bass clef.

So, how much snow are you all getting? In Grand Rapids, we've gotten quite a lot in the past 3 weeks. In the past week we've gotten about 12" or so. Give or take. Plus, it's been down into the teends for temperatures and below that with the wind chill. Butt cold!!!

We're in Chicago now. When we came here, they hardly had any snow but over night, it dropped 3" on us! It's following me!

How bout the rest of you?

Hey Howie! Long time no see! Where you been?

My answer absolutely not. I hate the white stuff. Would you like me to hire a dump truck load full and have it delivered to your driveway?😄

We are getting a lot of snow. My snowplow driver just came and plowed out about 1 foot of snow out of my driveway just now. We are expected to get somewhere between 4 to 6 more inches by morning yet.

One of my sons just came home a little bit of ago and said the roads are a nightmare. If a 25-year-old says they are a nightmare then that means they are bad!

Send some of the snow down here to Texas. Haven't had any winter here in central Texas. A few cool days, but nothing like two years ago.

Take moisture any way we can get it.
